Bennett Pottery Celebrates 40 Years

Bennett Pottery News Release

On Nov. 29, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bennett Pottery celebrates 40 years of making ceramics on Molokai.  Since 1974, potter Dan Bennett has been creating unique stoneware and porcelain utilitarian ware at a reasonable cost for the Molokai community.  Bennett is a founding member of the Molokai Arts Center (MAC) and teaches ceramics for University of Hawaii Maui College on site, as well as beginning and intermediate classes for adults.  He can be found at the MAC teaching three days each week.

Aside from a wide range of pottery designed for functional use, this year features some small sculpture pieces of animals and structures as well as work from salt and raku firings.

Even the sculptural works are made, such as piggy banks or luminaries. There are over 1,000 items for show and/or sale, most of which are appropriate for daily use in the kitchen or durable enough for the garden. The mugs, plates, bowls and other kitchenware items are dishwasher, oven and microwave safe. For pictures of recent work, you may follow us on Instagram @bennettpottery.

Bennett Pottery invites you to attend our event and if you are not able to come the day of

the show/sale early birds can call for an appointment at 567-6585.   If you would like more information as to directions, have questions, or would like to know where nearby parking is available, please give us a call.
